Former Speaker Pelosi Has Lost Her Mind
Late last night the news broke that Former Speaker, Rep. Nancy Pelosi – Democrat, chased down a Republican Representative through the House Chamber. Not once, but twice. It went so far that Republicans attempted to physically block an irrational Pelosi from the target of her rage, Rep. Tom Marino of Pennsylvania. John Parkinson, an ABC News Congressional Reporter, has the story. But allow me to | Read More »
Halbig Mailbag: Josh Marshall Commenters As Dumb As Josh Marshall
It has been a week full of own goals for Obamacare defenders, specifically the “intellectuals” of the left who never stopped to fathom that a single state would opt out of the crowning achievement of the progressive cause. We’ve seen the Gruber tapes, we’ve seen Greg Sargent face plant into the pavement like a fifty year old on a skateboard, and we saw Josh Marashall | Read More »
Mailbag: Who Will Speak for the SATANISTS?!
RedState doesn’t shy away from religion when discussing politics. We understand that free people must be allowed to form their own opinions and that those opinions will likely be informed by their individual religious beliefs. Those of us on the Front Page of RedState also believe, to some degree or another, that our nation was founded by men influenced by the Jewish and Christian faiths. | Read More »
Michelle Nunn (D-GASen Candidate) Wants Jewish Donors, Gives to Hamas
Eliana Johnson broke news today with the release of a confidential campaign plan from Georgia Democratic Senate candidate Michelle Nunn. The campaign plan details the demographic models, special interest groups, donor targets, and the assumption in the campaign plan that Nunn will have a compliant media. This is what Johnson focused on in much of her post. For me, the real news comes in the | Read More »
On Immigration, The Border, and Dana Loesch, The American Thinker Isn’t Thinking or American
Today there is an article in the American Thinker by M. Catherine Evans in which she strenuously objected to Glenn Beck, Senator Ted Cruz, Representative Louie Gohmert, and, especially, Dana Loesch being charitable human beings. In her rhetorical screed, which will lend further credence to the liberal caricature of conservatives hating brown people, Evans accuses Loesch, and those who helped provide food, clothing, and | Read More »

The Mississippi Election Fraud Story Isn’t About Charles C. Johnson
Over the course of the last few weeks a lot of ink has been spilled on twitter and other outlets with regard to the Mississippi GOP Senate run-off and subsequent allegations of voter irregularities. I reported the original allegations of massive vote buying for Cochran in the run-off election here at RedState with an audio interview with Rev. Fielder of Mississippi. That same evening Charles | Read More »

Veterans for a Strong America (VSA) has formally notified the Department of State they are seeking all of Secretary Hillary Clinton’s agency and home (personal) landline, mobile phone and email records, including information on any “alias” accounts, for the 36 hour timeframe surrounding the Benghazi terror attacks.

Rep. Louie Gohmert on Border Crisis: We Can’t Trust This President…
Last night Rep. Louie Gohmert appeared on the O’Reilly Factor to discuss the flood of illegal alien minors at the border. Rep. Gohmert, who is from Texas, spoke passionately about the crisis at our border and warned that President Obama shouldn’t be trusted at all on this issue. (h/t Caleb Howe at Truth Revolt) Before noting that President Obama could not be trusted, Gohmert spoke | Read More »
#MSSen FEC Now Looking Into Pro Cochran SuperPAC
From Roll Call, the defecation has begun to hit the rotary wind device: The Federal Election Commission (FEC) has sent a Request For Additional Information (RFAI) to Mississippi Conservatives, a Super PAC supporting the re-election of Sen. Thad Cochran, R-Miss. The committee has until August 1st to respond, or the failure to do so “could result in an audit or enforcement action.” Not only do we have allegations of vote buying | Read More »
BREAKING: New Allegations Point to Cochran Campaign in Mississippi Senate Vote Buying Scandal
An audio interview has surfaced in which the interviewee claims that he was to be paid by the Cochran camp to grease voters in the Mississippi GOP Senate runoff election. The audio interview, which coincides with a separate audio recording and batch of evidence produced by the newly launched GotNews.com, a project by Charles C. Johnson, alleges that the Cochran campaign conspired with a Mississippi Reverend | Read More »

MAILBAG: Unintentional Libertarian Irony
We get a lot of mail here at RedState. Sometimes it is praise, sometimes it is complaints. Rarely is it so unintentionally funny as when a disgruntled libertarian decides his or her rights were violated and proceeds to preach of sermon. Fortunately for our readers, that is indeed the case we have for you today. Annotated: From: “Linda-Aaron38“ Subject: Red State bans a Libertarian and loses an | Read More »
Hope or Despair… Your Choice.
After this week’s primary loss in Mississippi many conservative activists, who have tried to work within the GOP system, have begun to question the utility of voting for the GOP candidate in the General Election. We’ve already seen calls to back Travis Childers in Mississippi, as well as open debate as to whether conservatives will support Mitch McConnell in Kentucky. Unfortunately, these discussions are justified | Read More »
